September 11, 2003 Run-off Election
Polls Open Election Day 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
The results of the August 7th election mean that a run-off election will be held between Adam Dread, David Briley, Larry Schmittou, and Roy Dale.
Briley and Dread are my choices. Dread, I’ve mentioned before, is a younger incumbent whose work on the beer board is pretty popular. Briley is one of the few progressive candidates on the ballot. In addition, neither of them ever said this:
“Pat Nolan, the political commentator, said on TV the other night that I’m the most conservative of the group. I plead guilty to that,” Schmittou tells the Scene. “People don’t like these 25 percent property tax hikes. And certainly I’m against this gay thing. I make no bones about that. I don’t agree with that lifestyle, and I don’t want gays and lesbians teaching my grandchildren. They recruit. They don’t reproduce.”
Larry Schmittou, however, did.
This is a run-off election, so the turnout will be even lower than you could possibly imagine, so don’t think your vote doesn’t count. This election hasn’t exactly been a big win for the anti-bigot constituency. Let’s do some damage control.
